Hydration

Bartender: “Hi!  Can I get you something to drink?”

Guest: “No thank you.  I’ll have a water.”

This. Drives. Us. Nuts.

Water is a drink.  It provides hydration; in fact, about 65% of our bodies are made up of this stuff.  But when you walk into an establishment that owns a license to distribute alcohol, this does not mean you actually have to consume any.  If it’s 11:30 in the morning and you want a glass of orange juice, there’s nothing wrong with that!  If you want an extra spicy bloody mary or a Grey Goose martini, that’s ok too.  But if you plan an consuming a beverage… ANY beverage… do not answer “No.”

Maybe, “I’ll just have a water,” or “Could I just have a diet coke?”  If a bartender asks, “Would you like to start out with a glass of wine or a Cosmo?” THEN the appropriate response would be, “No thank you.  I’ll have a water.”  

Don’t sell water short people.  You’ll have plenty of chances to prove yourself.  Like when the response to “Can I get you something to drink?” is “Yes please.  Ketel one, straight up, tiny bit dirty, no fruit.  And keep ’em coming.”  Until then, stay hydrated everyone!
